Who are The Spooked Horse?

Mike Diaz is a writer/director who's worked all over the world, from Iceland to Australia, Nigeria to Alaska, and everywhere in between. For the last couple of years, he's produced dramatic docuseries for juggernauts like National Geographic Studios. Recently, though, he's returned to his narrative roots, writing and directing scripted content that's at once absurd and darkly comedic and aims to bastardize popular culture from the last thirty years.
